These pancakes are so quick and easy to make! Eggs are a great breakfast option providing high-quality protein and a source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D to support healthy bones and our immune system. Bananas are also rich in micronutrients, including potassium which is important for regulating blood pressure. The addition of oats gives us soluble fibre, which can help to lower cholesterol.
This easy to make granola is both delicious and healthy, containing much less sugar than shop bought varieties. You’ll get plenty of fibre from the oats and the quinoa flakes give a protein boost, including all of the essential amino acids. The golden turmeric has an anti-inflammatory effect and its absorption is improved by including the coconut oil. I’ve mixed up the dried fruit content here, adding in sour cherries, which are high in anthocyanins that have a range of beneficial effects including improving gut health.
This smoothie is packed with nutrients to nourish your skin. Mango is a powerhouse of antioxidants, including vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene. Kiwi are also a rich source of vitamin C, which in addition to its antioxidant properties, is important for collagen and elastin formation. Brazil nuts provide yet more antioxidants, this time as selenium, while flaxseed and avocado are a welcome boost of healthy fats.
I must admit, I wouldn't have thought adding grated courgette to porridge would work, but it's surprisingly tasty.
Suspend your disbelief and have a go!
